(no subject)

So I got my essay about the construction of use and misuse of drugs back and got an A. So I bloody should, I worked my arse off for it. And then I provided the course coordinators with feedback on their handy dandy form, about how I feel the assessment for this course is missing the mark for the level it's aimed at. I'll spare you the details but I didn't spare them, since it's the first time the course has been run and feedback is important to make it better, right? And yes, I did make suggestions for how it could be improved, not just criticisms.

Overall I'm feeling pretty disgruntled about the whole thing and struggling to work out whether it's because the course has been objectively disappointing or because my expectations were unrealistic based in what I already know about the topic. I did learn things, and it's had an effect on my thinking in that the human rights aspect of the war on drugs has increased in importance to me, but was it worth $700? I don't know. And I guess the fact that I'm even asking that gives me my answer - I don't think I've asked myself that for any of the other courses I've done.

Will I ever properly get over being angry? Will my first response to a perceived threat ever be something other than rage? What does that feel like? I have no idea.

I was going to put a picture of She Hulk in here, but I couldn't find one where she wasn't dressed in a bikini. *sigh*
